                                                 Peace Media Project

 

               The struggle is on between the Congress and the American electorate over the fate of the disastrous US occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan.

     WHYNot News is on the ground, walking the halls of Congress recording the stories affecting the lives of millions. Within the first two weeks, WHYNot News captured a chance conversation between Rep. Obey and Marine Mom Tina Richards discussing the controversial supplemental budget bill – a video that went global.

In that same week, WHYNot News footage of Peace Advocates occupying Senator Barbara Mikulski’s office was broadcast on international networks across the Middle East and Europe.
     WHYNot News is video documenting essential stories like citizens being shut out of budget hearings, Iraq Vets against the War occupying the Capitol applying the same techniques they use in Baghdad, and citizens doing all they can in the House and Senate to stop a war in a recalcitrant Congress.
     WHYNot News asserts our rights to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press. It provides a new paradigm for the role of the press and how media works in our democracy for the people.
Every Movement needs its own media. WHYNot News embodies the 21st Century’s citizen’s media.
